    Re: clutch problems

    97 / 98 or later TLS (5 or 6 spring?)

    The camset could be worn out, although the aftermarket spring should help cover that up.

    What sort of plates? OEM or other aftermarket ones. If they were aftermarket ones did you measure them all before fitting them? Some aftermarket plates are under minimum spec even when new. Some aftermarket spring are suspect too.

    OEM plates - metal and fibre.
    Barnett springs.

    100% sure you have the actuator adjusted correctly? If the set screw is in too far - even with the arm at the 5-10 degrees the manual lists and the cable adjusted correctly it can still hold the pressure plate out.

    If they're aftermarket plates and not Suzuki ones, pull them out and measure them.

        How many springs?

        In the clutch. This is a 5 spring one.

              Could be.

              But if you used Barnett spings, they would most likely cover any cam-set problems up.

                  6 spring cam-sets are cheaper to replace than the 5 spring ones as you have to get a new hub with the 5 spring ones.

                  Pull it out and inspect it.

                  The actuator is definitely set correctly? Plates in the correct order? Last plate in off-set to the rest?

                  Did you line up the punch marks on the pressure plate and the hub?
